Great fit, good for PNW weather, but not durable...

I just started a new job in Oregon and picked up this jacket at the Boise-area store. I weight 190, 5'3" and the XL fits wonderful. I can easily fit a fleece or down underneath. I don't like this jacket for warm rainy weather (you'll get more wet on the inside from sweat than it is wet on the outside from rain when it's above 75 degrees), but it's perfect for the weather in the Pacific Northwest. I main beef with this jacket is how easily the fabric around the wrists wears out. I've had it for 4 weeks and the cuffs are already fraying. Also, the fabric is not very stain resistant. I bought the jacket in "cloud" because it was less than $40 that day knowing I was asking for some stains, but I wasn't expecting regular trail and beach grime to stain it so easily. After washing with tech wash, it still has marks.

Bottom line - great fit, comfortable for mild weather, but don't expect it to last you many years. But, if you can get it for super cheap, I recommend this jacket.
